Baby “A” | Austin Newborn Photographer

Look at this adorable baby girl I got to photograph last week! She’s 5 lbs of total cuteness and slept the entire session and even cooperated with her daddy and I to get this beautiful photo (inspired by Anne Geddes):

She was covered head to toe in a rash (allergic reaction) but you’d never have known if I hadn’t have told you! This is why I loooove Photoshop! Enjoy your sneak peek “M” family!

Peaceful | Austin Baby Photographer

Hayden turns 11 months old this week. His first birthday is fast approaching (April 4th). I’ve been wanting to try to get some “sleepy newborn” photos of him before he outgrows his chubby baby body – I am so pleased with the result of my first attempt! My precious boy fell into a deep sleep for about 15 minutes, long enough for me to work some magic at baby posing…

A New Life | Austin Adoption Photographer

I had the privilege of photographing 9 month old, Baby Nate, who was adopted from Ethiopia last month. He is a gorgeous little boy with the biggest brown eyes I’ve ever seen. The minute I walked into their home, I could feel the love and happiness all around. This tiny child, born into an orphanage, will now be raised in a loving Christ-centered home in the United States of America. Amazing to think about how that will shape him as he grows up and the impact he’ll have as a grown man. A man of God. Enjoy your sneak peak, “G” family! (Edited to add: Baby Nate is wearing his traditional Ethiopian boy’s linen two-piece outfit with hand-embroidery – isn’t it beautiful?)

My Lil Stink | Austin Baby Photographer

My little stinker is about to turn 11 months old next week. I’m already ordering supplies for his 1st birthday party!! I blinked, and he grew up. (Okay, okay, I have that “song” playing, but hey!) I still have 5 more weeks to savor his babyhood and all those precious slobbery smiles, the way he holds my hand while I’m nursing him, the way he says “bahbahbah” and does the parade-wave to say goodbye, the look of excitement and anticipation whenever I throw him up into the air, the way he looks at me when I enter the room, and so so much more. I love him and the chill, careful, crazy little guy he’s growing up to be…

Gorgeous. Love the light. Love the pose. You’re amazing at what you do. That’s why I linked to you from my blog under Photographers that Inspire. And as I look at my list of inspiring photogs, I wonder if maybe they put something in the water in Texas. Sure are a lot of you on my list!
